Emily Simpson

RHOC-Reunion-Kelly-Dodd

Season 13 of Real Housewives of Orange County was, in all honesty, a snooze-fest. The biggest source of drama, other than Tamra Judge’s constant complaints about being Shannon Beador’s best friend, were the fireworks between OG Housewife Vicki Gunvalson and single (and oh-so-ready to mingle) Kelly Dodd.

Kelly accused Vicki of breaking “girl code” by going on a double-date with Vicki’s boyfriend, Steve Lodge,  one of Vicki’s friends, and Kelly’s ex-husband, Michael Dodd. She was furious by Vicki’s betrayal. Now, she isn’t a big fan of Steve’s, either. Still, that issue drove most of the season to its exciting lackluster conclusion.

Emily Simpson

The Real Housewives of Orange County viewers did not get to see much of Emily Simpson’s shadiness this past season. However, she does have it in her. It seems like most of the Orange County Housewives (past and present) are afraid to stand up to Tamra Judge. However, Emily is not one of them. At least on social media.

Emily blessed our Twitter feeds with an extremely shady tweet about Tamra and Cut Fitness, you know the gym that none of the cast members film at even though they work out in almost every episode. If Emily promises to bring this level of shade to the next group dinner, then she deserves a second season on the show.

It felt like there were Real Housewives meetups happening all over the country this week. Or at least that’s what it seemed like when I scroll through my Instagram feed. Kandi Burruss supported Beverly Hills Housewife Erika Jayne at her Atlanta concert. Potomac Housewives Gizelle Bryant hung out with Real Housewives of Atlanta OG NeNe Leakes. Warning: they applied way too much airbrush to their IG photo. Cynthia Bailey left the ATL to hang out with Dorinda Medley in New York City.

Bravo worlds collided when Vanderpump Rules cast members Stassi Schroeder and Beau Clark spent time with (the remaining) Summer House stars Kyle Cooke, Carl Radke, and Amanda Batula.

Real Housewives of Dallas stars Stephanie Hollman and Brandi Redmond shared photos hanging with their kids. Meanwhile, their costar Cary Deuber shared a photo of her face all marked up and ready for a cosmetic procedure. Orange County Housewife Shannon Beador followed her lead. Shannon posted a photo of herself getting some cosmetic enhancements. This is a social media trend that I just don’t understand.

Captain Lee Rosbach and Katie Chastain attended an event in Florida with Below Deck alum Connie Arias. Josiah Carter shared a picture of himself  Ashton Pienaar, Ross Inia, and Adrian Martin. Meanwhile, the two most controversial cast members (who haven’t been fired yet) Rhylee Gerber and Laura Betancourt took a selfie while kayaking.

Southern Charm stars Cameran Eubanks, Craig Conover, Chelsea Meissner, and Whitney Sudler-Smith enjoyed some quality time. Naomie Olindo shared an “after” photo following some Botox injections. Kathryn Dennis slayed in a hot pink outfit at her brother’s wedding.

Teen Mom and star of the upcoming Ex on the Beach season Farrah Abraham channeled her inner Ariana Grande (who was inspired by Mean Girls) for a photo.

90 Day Fiance couples Jonathan Rivera and Fernanda Flores, Ashley Martson and Jay Smith, and David Toborowsky and Annie Suwan let us all know that their relationships are still going strong with some photos.

Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member Melissa Gorga and her daughter Antonia posed for a photo with Jennifer Lopez.

Shannon and Tamra face off on RHOC reunion

Last night was part three of the Real Housewives Of Orange County reunion. Which means this bizarre season is finally over. Part 3 was all about Shannon Beador, as pretty much every part of everything is. As Shannon said, “I’m sorry for being me me me me me!”

Is Shannon crazy? Is Shannon an emotional wreck? Are the voices in Shannon’s head actually Tamra Judge reading a script from David Beador‘s iPhone on how to manipulate and condescend Shannon into a meltdown? #yes

But first a Kelly Dodd montage! Kelly is dating, dating, dating and ignoring Jolie who Michael Dodd is dating. But Vicki Gunvalson isn’t! Obviously, she is very invested in what is going on in Michael’s life.

Let’s be honest. The Real Housewives of Orange County reunion episodes have been better than the regular episodes this season. Then again, that’s not saying a lot. The ladies are really bringing it. FINALLY! Let’s hope this continues into Real Housewives of Orange County Season 14.

Emily’s law degree great use for….reunion show?

Emily Simpson’s introduction to the Real Housewives of Orange County has been a little iffy for me. Throughout much of the season, she’s been a backseat driver to the crazy that is the OC. Every once in a while she is the voice of reason among these women.  Or at the very least Gina Kirschenheiter’s wing woman. Overall, she hasn’t really had any major disagreements with the other women.

Her biggest issues have come from her own life with a possibly controlling her “keep it down” party police husband. Emily claimed that  Shannon Beador gave her flashbacks to her own mother’s issues. She shared her heartbreaking tales of miscarriages. She wanted a child when her husband didn’t. Reflecting on the season, it just didn’t seem as though Emily had much to fear from the reunion show. That didn’t stop Ms. Simpson from using that law degree. I might have been the first time a newcomer was really ready for the trial by fire that is a Real Housewives reunion.rom

Shannon Beador

Last night was part 2 of the Real Housewives Of Orange County reunion. Shannon Beador found herself behaving like a real-live normal woman for a change.

Part one of the reunion ended with Kelly Dodd screaming into the phone and crying. Part 2 opened with Vicki Gunvalson apologizing for repeating a rumor she heard about Kelly  using cocaine. While that is all nice and good, we know that Vicki’s apology is as sincere as the one Kelly gave for calling Vicki a “pig” and a “fat ass.” Shannon, however, ermerges as the unlikely voice of reason when she points out that the negativity and tit for tat is really hitting too low and isn’t making either woman feel (or look) good. And no amount of plastic surgery erases a bad attitude!

RHOC-Reunion-Tamra-Judge

Why are we even having a Real Housewives of Orange County reunion? Well, maybe we do need one, but not one in multiple parts. Long story short, the Real Housewives of Orange County cast did not come through this season.

However, the first part of the RHOC reunion was better than the whole season. Let’s just hope the same holds true for the second.
